Archaeologists Rejoice!

As probably the most exciting news to come since… my own npc, I have some awesome news to share. Ever since the Toy Box was revealed, I’ve wondered whether Blizz would be able to restore all those archaeology items we’ve destroyed over the years for room. In fact, it’s something I’ve mentioned and asked several times on Twitter but I now have a definitive answer. @Cymre one of our engineers produced some...

Captain Ironbeard

There’s a new Iron Pirate in town and his name is Captain Ironbeard, or is it? Just head to the ship on Ironfist Harbour, Nagrand to see him marked as a skull although he’s not a silver dragon. Old Torglork has sent hundreds like you to the depths! Time to join them! It’s no safer under my guns, my blades are just as dangerous! He drops Ironbeard’s Blunderbuss as well as an Iron Buccaneer’s Hat and some...

The Art of Geyser Jumping

A few days ago, I saw the Shado-Pan Geyser Gun making the rounds across several blogs starting from Rades, then Navi and a couple of others. The hardest thing for me was to queue for an LFR and then wait for the queue to the Forgotten Depths to pop (if you don’t have access to a raid lock). Luckily for me, I zoned in on the way to Ji-Kun so I just had to wait for a kill. From there you can use a feather to go through the red...

Dread Ship Vazuvius

This is possibly one of the coolest rare spawns on the Timeless Isle. As I mentioned before, a few need some sort of event or interaction before they appear and this is no exception. First you need to kill Evermaw, the rare elite whale shark that swims around the entire Isle and loot the Mist-Filled Spirit Lantern. Then head to the Misty Strand and use the lantern at the Cursed Gravestone. This will summon the Dread Ship Vazuvius....

Undersize Me

I was meaning to farm this for a while, especially after a few reminders from Luxy and Navi so over two nights I farmed my Whole-Body Shrinka’ novelty item in the Barrens. It’s certainly a lot easier to farm the requirements for the weekly on my priest, especially after trying to do it on my pali (those caravans grr) but by the time I reached 491 stones, guess what pops on the map… If only that spawned an hour...

Gokk’lok’s Shell

If you’re looking for something a bit different, head west of Rikkitun Village and get ready to get wet. Swim out a short distance until you reach Gokk’lok’s Grotto in the Dread Wastes. Once there, you’ll get an underwater breathing buff called Enchanted Essence as long as you remain in the area. Gokk’lok is a huge neutral 91 elite clam with 16.3M Health. Just like the other neutral elite mobs in...

Twice Smitten

Smite was always one of my favourite bosses from vanilla. I used to love listening to his familiar dialogue in Deadmines and was always a bit sad to see him die each time. When I learnt about this special compass from Yorik Sharpeye – one of the Champion spawns in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, I was itching to get his novelty drop. Sadly, I was never able to see it in the beta and have tried to get it ever since. Today, it...
